A growing faith means a growing love for the Word of God and a desire to comprehend His truths like never before. However, our aim must never be to merely master the Scriptures, but, instead, to let the Scriptures master us. While systematic Bible intake should be a top priority in the life of the believer, this must have to do with sanctification as the end product. Without the Word dwelling in us richly we cannot see the transforming power of God that is intended by it.
“The backslider likes the preaching that wouldn't hit the side of a house, while the real disciple is delighted when the truth brings him to his knees.” ~ Billy Sunday
